Unhappy DSC PC5400 problem

Hi, I am trying to set up a DVACS with DSC PC5400DV mdoule. The panel I use is DSC PC1832. Looks like the panel can see PC5400, because once I connect it to keyboard bus, it show a communicator when I use code 903 to check it. But still I can't see it has any signal it sends out to the DVAC line. Do I missed any setup on control panel or the PC5400?

1. Is PC5400 and PC5400DV are the same module?
2. Can PC5400DV serve as printer with tghe smaller RJ-11 jack? The bigger jack RJ45 I know is for DVAC.
3. How can I know the DVAC is working?
4. Do I have to disable the phone line, how?
5. I had setup the 2 digit account code in section 40 of the PC5400.

This is urgent, anyone please help

Haven't messed with one of these modules.

According to the install instructions (version 3.0 is the one I'm looking at), the RJ11 is currently not used (future use, I guess)

As best I can tell, the DV is the model that is capable of the network connection.

As far as it working, if they are recieving data at the DVACS reciever you are sending to, then it's working.

Outside of that, this is pretty much a Canada only configuration. This thing is a serial printer interface in the US.
